dnata’s flower handling expertise takes flight in Amsterdam

Dnata handles up to 42,000 tonnes of delicate flowers each year from its advanced Amsterdam cargo facilities.

Orchids, chrysanthemums, and the ever-popular roses are the most popular types of 27,000 tonnes of flowers imported, arriving daily into the European continent from key source markets in East Africa and South America. One of the busiest times of the year is the two- to three-week window before Valentine’s Day in February, with multiple freight aircraft arriving each day to supply Europe’s love birds.

dnata’s Amsterdam facilities also manage the export of 15,000 tonnes of flowers annually, primarily the home-grown gerbera, gypsophila and peonies.

Jan van Anrooy, Managing Director, dnata Netherlands, said: "Understanding our customers’ requirements is crucial to ensuring perishable items such as flowers preserve their freshness and longevity, maintaining the value for our customers. Our customer-oriented team and best-in-class facilities ensure that perishable cargo is processed quickly and efficiently throughout the transportation process."
